Rich text is text that is formatted with common formatting options, such as bold and italics, that are unavailable with plain text. The new Studio gives you the ability to add rich text blocks to your campaigns. Rich text blocks are commonly used in newsletters and can even be paired with inline images. This article will walk you through how to configure a rich text block. For an overview of all campaign creation options, please refer to Create a New Campaign.
